Keedra's Dedication

On April 12th, we celebrated with Keedra the completion of her new home. Keedra's family and friends came over to see her new place, along with volunteers and supporters who helped make this home a reality.

Thank you, Wegmans for filling Keedra's pantry and fridge! I bet her son was excited to see all that yummy food! Thank you, Capital One and Publix Charities, for their financial contributions and dedication to affordable housing.

Check out some pictures from the dedication on our website!

Construction Intern

Thanks to the Future Community Impact Makers: Atlantic Union Bank Intern Grant Program, we will be hiring a summer construction intern. This individual will work for 8 weeks and learn construction planning, permits, and county processes necessary for construction; knowledge of nonprofit work and affordable housing; and more. The majority of construction is expected to be on Habitat's first King William lot. To read more and apply, visit us online.

After 19 years Maria Booker retired from Hanover and King William Habitat as the Controller on April 28. Maria was a part of this organization building 51 houses and completing 48 repairs during her tenure! As our Controller, she truly kept the lights on and we couldn’t have done it without her. She will be missed but we know how excited she is to enjoy her retirement! Maria trained her replacement, Randy Nunn, who started with us in March and is our Controller going forward. 

Aging in Place

What a difference widening the door and swapping knobs for lever handles can make! Calvin is a stroke victim who recently applied for bathroom accessibility modifications. After completing the Comprehensive Assessment and Solution Process for Aging Residents (CASPAR) with an occupational therapist, we successfully converted his tub into a shower equipped with grab bars, a handheld adjustable shower head, and a temperature-controlled water valve.

Homeowner Support

Now Accepting Homeownership Applications

Habitat’s path to homeownership is an important and in-depth process, requiring hard work, time, and dedication. This helps to ensure the long-term success of Habitat homeowners.

In order to qualify for Hanover and King William Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program, an individual or family must meet the following homebuyer requirements. Most mortgages are financed through an outside party.

  • Live or work in Hanover or King William County for a minimum of one year.
  • Income of $30,000 per year and up, depending on family size (or lower if you own land). See the income chart for details on our website.
  • Demonstrated financial responsibility through credit references. No outstanding collections or judgments.
  • A willingness to partner with Habitat, by committing to a minimum of 200 hours of sweat equity.
  • A need for affordable housing. You live in housing that is overcrowded, unaffordable, OR substandard.

For this application cycle, we will be building in Ashland. If you have questions, contact Kimberly Bell at kbell@hkwhabitat.org and visit https://www.hkwhabitat.org/homeownership/

Ways to Support Habitat

We Need Your Help

For our programs to continue to be successful, we need your help! We are grateful for the support we get from this community, but with rising costs, it takes increased funding to deliver on our mission. With the price of land, material costs, and specialized subcontractors, we need your support. The average cost for us to purchase land and build a home has increased to $205,000 per home and the average critical repair cost is $8,000.

Today, we ask for your financial support.

To donate online via e-check or credit card, visit www.hkwhabitat.org/donate or you can mail a check to PO Box 2604 Mechanicsville, VA 23116.

Thank you for your continued support for your local Habitat!
